Jimmy Page and Jack White Aren’t Fond of Music Games

While skimming through Kotaku, we found an interesting tidbit on what some musicians think of music-based games.

They are two well-known musicians, and music games aren’t their thing.  In a recent documentary, Page was quoted as saying, “You think of the drum part that John Bonham did on Led Zeppelin’s first track on the first album, Good Times Bad Times,” Page said. “How many drummers in the world can play that part, let alone on Christmas morning?”

Jack White said, “It’s depressing to have a label come and tell you that [Guitar Hero] is how kids are learning about music and experiencing music…which format people should get their music in…if you have to be in a video game to get in front of them, that’s a little sad.”

Kotaku also notes that you can hear the White Stripes on the upcoming Guitar Hero 5.

Don’t fault the games.  Most of our music channels don’t introduce us to new music anymore.  These music-based games, along with iTunes, are probably some of the best things the industry has right now.

Kids are learning about all kinds of music through these things, and to just call it “sad” is silly.  “Sad” is criticizing the method of distribution shortly after the announcement that you are going to be included in an upcoming game.
